Efficient, low-noise, single-photon frequency conversion



Paulina S. Kuo, Jason S. Pelc, Oliver T. Slattery, Yong-Su Kim, M. M. Fejer, Xiao Tang


We demonstrate simultaneous low-noise and efficient frequency conversion in a periodically poled LiNbO3 waveguide with spectral filtering. We achieve >50% external conversion efficiency and 600 noise counts per second at peak conversion.
